the rare and the uncooked

How rare is too rare? Went to a very well thought of restaurant tonight, had the tasting menu, and two items (foie gras and veal chop) were discernably cool in the center. I mean not just rare, but well below room temp. I generally don't balk at bloody meat and certainly not raw fish, but in a restaurant of repute I couldn't bring myself to send these dishes back. Should I have? I'm thinking of calling them tomorrow and offering a little constructive criticism, saying, you know, FYI, maybe you're being a little quick off the fire sometimes....
